Dean’s Message

D e a n ’s M e s s age



loha and welcome to the newest edition of the University of Hawai‘i at Ma– noa College of Education magazine, Current Perspectives. You may have noticed we have a new look this year. In an effort to save on production costs and provide additional information to our readers, we have combined Current Perspectives with our COE Annual Report in one issue for the 2008–2009 academic year. We invite you to provide your comments to us about this new format. In addition, we are considering a name change for the college’s magazine to avoid confusion with another well-respected journal published by the college, Educational Perspectives. See the inside cover for directions about how to submit your ideas. We are seeking a name that reflects the history and context of the college. In this combination magazine and annual report, we hope you will find many items of interest to you as alumni and friends of the college. You will read about how we are making a number of changes in our programs and making a difference for our students and for the state. In the past year, we have opened night options for students to pursue bachelor’s degrees; we have new agreements with community colleges to help ease the transition of their students into our programs; and we have initiated a new program (Get FIT: Future in Teaching) to engage students early in exploring teaching as a career choice. We have expanded our online pro-

Our faculty, staff, alumni, and students continue to be recognized for their outstanding achievements in leadership, publications, research, evaluation, teaching, international exchanges, and partnerships with schools and other agencies. You will find some of their stories in these pages. In addition, you can read about the amazing people recognized at the 21st Annual College of Education Recognition Celebration. These outstanding awardees were selected by the COE Alumni Association and a committee from the college to be honored for their achievements in education and for making a difference for others. We hope the pictures and biographies from the event will encourage you to join us next year for another fabulous celebration. You also will find in these pages the names of those we thank for their support of the college throughout the year. Their generosity allows us to sustain and build excellence. In this issue, we pay tribute to a man whose influence will forever mark the College of Education at UH. Dr. Hubert Everly — or as he referred to himself, Everly the Educator — served the college as dean from 1956 to 1979 and was an instrumental mover and shaker for education in the state. We bid Dr. Everly, who died on May 16, 2008 at the age of ninety-three, a sad farewell. We honor him for his commitment, his dedication, and his love for the College of Education and for the people of Hawai‘i. After you read the following stories about what is happening in the college, you can peruse the information provided in the Annual Report. Mahalo for your support of the COE, and we look forward to seeing your stories in the next issue.

The Master of Education in Teaching (MEdT) program has expanded dramatically in the past year. Demand for the program has taken off and with good reason. Principals and DOE personnel unanimously agree that it prepares outstanding new teachers. The MEdT program is a full-time, two-year program for those who have undergraduate degrees in areas other than education. Candidates complete a graduate degree as well as initial teacher licensure in elementary or secondary education. The MEdT program is offered on O‘ahu in collaboration with partner K–12 DOE and charter schools where candidates participate in clinical experiences from the start of the program and remain intensely engaged across four semesters. The MedT program operated from 1990 until 2005 with about 24 new candidates accepted each year in a single cohort. In 2005, the program expanded in partnership with Ho‘okula– iwi to create an additional cohort focused on Hawaiian immersion education and schools in Native Hawaiian communities. It expanded again in 2006 with a cohort formed to support the DOE’s partnership with Teach for America whose candidates are placed in emergency hire positions. In Fall 2008, the program reviewed more than 130 applicants and accepted 85 candidates in five cohorts (one TFA, one Ho‘okula– iwi, and three with partner schools).


The Department of Special Education and the Institute for Teacher Education Elementary Program began offering an evening dual preparation cohort in elementary and special education in fall 2008 with 13 students enrolled. The BEd program is designed to meet the needs of those who would benefit from an evening program of study. Niki Libarios, academic advisor in the Office of Student and Academic Affairs said, “The non-traditional evening-based schedule provides another option for students to participate in the program while having the flexibility to keep day time commitments like other classes or work. This schedule is especially beneficial to those employed by the DOE who want to keep their day jobs while pursuing teacher licensure.” Students in the dual program, whether daytime or evening, take the same required courses and go through the program with a cohort of peers. The group is co-coordinated by faculty members from the special education and elementary education departments. It is a two and one-half year program requiring candidates to attend courses two evenings per week and to participate in supervised field experiences one and one-half days per week, making this program one semester longer than the daytime program. This somewhat slower pace allows students to carry a lighter course load each semester than those in the daytime program. Upon completion of the program, graduates will be eligible to apply for licensure in special education and elementary education through the Hawai‘i Teacher Standards Board.

MLMED Graduates


Tuning in to Adolescent Needs The College of Education’s Master of Education degree in Curriculum Studies with a Middle Level Emphasis (MLMED) graduated two cohorts of twenty students each in August 2008. After completing a final course over the summer, one cohort on O‘ahu and another on Maui and Moloka‘i received their MEd degrees, bringing the total number of MLMED program graduates to two hundred. As classroom teachers, participants in the program work with young adolescents in both public and private schools. According to Paul D. Deering, professor in the COE’s Department of Curriculum Studies and MLMED Coordinator, young adolescents undergo enormous changes in all developmental areas, offering huge challenges and equally huge opportunities to their educators and parents. “The MLMED program and its participants are dedicated to this complex and wonderful age group,” he added. The next opportunity for Maui educators to participate in the MLMED program will be with an online cohort, which is scheduled to begin in July 2009. This cohort will be available to students on all of the Hawaiian islands and aims to attract participants from Australia, New Zealand, Samoa, and the mainland.

FIT Program Students and Staff

L aunching a Future in Teaching The College of Education’s Ma– noa Partnerships has initiated a new program for students interested in teaching as a possible career. Through the Get FIT: A Future In Teaching program, students will have access to special courses, activities designed to introduce them to the field of teaching, service learning experiences with K–12 students, a private lounge on campus, guidance from COE advisors, and many more opportunities to explore the profession of teaching. They also will have an opportunity to interact with current students in the College of Education. More than 60 UH Freshmen signed up to participate in the Get FIT program in its inaugural year. “Learning communities have always been helpful to students by offering them peer support, the ability to share perspectives, and camaraderie while pursuing their academic studies,” said the Director of Ma– noa Partnerships Margit Watts. Get FIT is targeted to UH students who are not yet admitted to the College of Education, but all students are welcome. Ma– noa Partnerships will pilot programs with community colleges and high school students next year.

Developed by Dr. Kathryn Au in 1996, Ka Lama o ke Kaiaulu (The Light of the Community) is an elementary teacher education cohort in the Institute for Teacher Education at the UHM College of Education (COE). Ka Lama partners with the Native Hawaiian community to prepare teachers to be effective in schools on the Leeward (Wai‘anae) Coast. Training preservice teachers in these schools builds their effectiveness and encourages them to stay and teach in those schools after graduation. In collaboration with public schools, Leeward Community College – Wai‘anae (LCC-W), and the Institute for Native Pacific Education and Culture (INPEACE), Ka Lama recruits and trains area residents and others interested in working in Leeward Coast Schools. The partnership’s focus is to reduce teacher turnover, increase the number of Hawaiian role models, and improve student achievement through culturally responsive teaching. It is a BEd program for students who have been admitted as juniors to the COE. Six cohorts have graduated since the program’s inception. In May 2008, more than half of the Ka Lama VI cohort graduates accepted positions as teachers in schools on the Leeward Coast.


A groundbreaking agreement between Leeward Community College (LCC) and the UHM College of Education (COE) will facilitate the smooth transition of students completing the Associate in Arts in Teaching program at LCC to the COE’s Bachelor of Education (BEd) program in Elementary Education; BEd in Elementary Education with an Early Childhood emphasis; BEd in Elementary Education with a Hawaiian Community Emphasis; and BEd dual preparation program in Elementary/ Special Education. Students must complete the Associate in Arts in Teaching program as well as meet a set of designated criteria for admission to the COE. The COE’s Office of Student Advising Services will collaborate with LCC advisors in order to ensure that accurate information is passed on to students, while LCC advisors ensure that students are advised of UHM-COE’s core and emphasis requirements. “We are very excited about this partnership. The greatest need for teachers exists in the Leeward and Central O‘ahu districts. It is a win-win situation for everyone,” said Erin Loo, a counselor for the Associate in Arts in Teaching Program at Leeward Community College.

Continuing Support For Native Hawaiian Education


Teacher recruitment, preservice preparation, in-service teacher professional development, leadership enhancement, education research, and curriculum improvement — all these are areas of focus for the College of Education’s Ho‘okula– iwi program. Funding for Ho‘okula– iwi initiatives has come from a variety of sources, including the Na– na– kuli/Wai‘anae community, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, Kamehameha Schools, the University of Hawai‘i, the Hawai‘i Department of Education, the UH-Ma– noa College of Education, the Hawai‘i legislature, and the federal government. Recently, the Ho‘okula– iwi Partnership was adopted by the Sovereign Councils of the Hawaiian Homelands Assembly as the educational model for Hawaiian homesteads statewide. This is significant in that it demonstrates a shared vision of educational excellence for Native Hawaiian children by the largest Native Hawaiian community organization in the state.

Recruitment and Preservice Initiatives

Ho‘okula– iwi aims to recruit Native Hawaiians and other Hawai‘i residents into the teaching profession. Preservice teachers speak to members of their own communities (6th grade students through adults) about the critical need to raise the quality of teaching in Hawai‘i schools and to improve educational outcomes for children. Recruitment efforts focus on identifying prospective teachers and school leaders who have skills, interests, and experiences that will enable them to work effectively across different cultures and to work in partnership with a range of groups. The Ho‘okula– iwi Partnership for preservice teacher education includes the Na– na– kuli/Wai‘anae community, the College of Education, Kawaihuelani Center for Hawaiian Language, and several Hawai‘i Department of Education schools — Na– na– ikapono Elementary, Na– na– kuli Elementary, Na– na– kuli High and Intermediate, Ka Waihona o ka Na‘auao Charter, Wai‘anae High, and Ke Kula Kaia– puni ‘o Anuenue — in long-term efforts to prepare outstanding teachers. Ho‘okula– iwi emphasizes the acquisition of tra-

ditional Hawaiian skills and knowledge in combination with skills and knowledge valued in the Western world. Because reading, writing, and oral literacy are foundational to children’s success in all areas of learning, the partnership emphasizes literacy, language, and culture (in both Hawaiian and English). To date, Na– na– ikapono School has been the training site for well over 120 student teachers, including many Native Hawaiians. Currently, Ho‘okula– iwi has forty preservice teachers in two Master of Education in Teaching (MEdT) cohorts (the Kua‘ana and Kaina cohorts). In keeping with Hawaiian cultural expectations that older siblings are responsible for the care and well-being of younger siblings, Ho‘okula– iwi requires the Kua‘ana cohort to mentor those in the Kaina cohort. During orientation for the Kaina cohort, members of the Kua‘ana cohort and Ho‘okula– iwi faculty welcomed new members in an ‘awa ceremony at Hale Ola Ho‘opa– ko– lea in Na– na– kuli, introduced them to the Na– na– kuli/ Wai‘anae community and partner schools, worked with them in the Anuenue School lo‘i, and, on the final day of the orientation, hosted them with food prepared in an imu. In fall 2008, Ho‘okula– iwi began a partnership with five teachers on Ni‘ihau to develop and deliver a customized preservice teacher education program that will allow them to become fully licensed by 2012. The program recognizes the uniqueness and importance of the Ni‘ihau community to the perpetuation of the Hawaiian language and the experiences of the Ni‘ihau teachers. Activities include internships at Na– na– ikapono Elementary and other partner schools, attendance at national/international conferences, and courses.

Leadership and Professional Development Initiatives In spring 2008, the COE entered into a partnership with Wai‘anae Complex schools to provide a MEd degree in curriculum studies for thirty K–12 teachers in Wai‘anae and Ma– kaha schools to prepare them to be

Ho‘okula– iwi also has a commitment to preparing Native Hawaiian educational leaders in areas such as curriculum research, school administration, and teacher education through doctoral study. A cohort of twelve Hawaiian doctoral students in the fields of education, political science, Hawaiian language and culture, and psychology are involved in mentoring preservice and inservice candidates. The primary role of these mentors is to provide guidance in the conceptualization, conduct, and dissemination of research on Native Hawaiian and indigenous education.

Curriculum Development and Research Initiatives

The U.S. Department of Education awarded Ho‘okula– iwi $1,241,619 for Nana i ka Pulapula: A partnership to improve education, conducted primarily at Na– na– ikapono Elementary School in Na– na– kuli with some services extended to other Wai‘anae coast locations with substantial Native Hawaiian populations. The project will focus on culturally responsive instructional approaches. It is expected that one hundrd educators of Native Hawaiian children will receive services to enhance

In its ef for t to v ita li ze indigenous education, Ho‘okula– iwi is a member of the International Consortium of Research Institutes for Indigenous Education and helps lead the American Educational Research Association’s (AERA) Indigenous Peoples of the Pacific Special Interest Group. Hookula– iwi’s national and international partners include universities in Aotearoa/New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Fiji, China, Taiwan, and the USA. Preparing educational researchers is a priority. Under the guidance of community, school, and university research experts, trainee researchers learn a variety of approaches to the conceptualization, conduct, and dissemination of research. Some of the approaches are consistent with Western methodology and others are consistent with Hawaiian methodology such as the use of ‘o– lelo Hawai‘i — written and oral histories.


Currently, two Ho‘okula– iwi faculty members are based in Hawai‘i DOE schools. One is based at Na– na– ikapono Community School museum where she is working on establishing a Kupuna Academy that will involve elders from the Na– na– kuli/ Wai‘anae community, documenting their experiences and knowledge in book form with assistance from Na– na– ikapono sixth graders and Ho‘okula– iwi preservice teachers. The second, based at Ke Kula Kaia– puni ‘o Anuenue, teaches K–12 students; preservice and in-service teachers; community members; and visiting educators and their students about lo’i production and culture. The hands-on approach is designed to instill the importance of ma– lama ‘a– ina — caring for and nurturing the land so that it can sustain life for generations. This is Ho‘okula– iwi’s metaphor for teacher education.


In efforts to improve teacher retention, Ho‘okula– iwi is working with the Hawai‘i Department of Education to develop a program to prepare teachers to serve as induction mentors to new teachers in the Na– na– kuli/Wai‘anae community. Successful teacher applicants who demonstrate leadership potential will earn a Post-Graduate Certificate for Induction Mentors. Approximately eightyseven teachers and staff from Na– na– ikapono Elementary School and community work alongside Ho‘okula– iwi faculty on a range of professional development sessions with a focus on providing one-on-one support to teachers in their classrooms. Courses and support sessions are offered on site at the school.

The partnership offers courses that are field-based, cotaught with teachers and community members, and focused on teaching in a Hawaiian community. As part of this initiative, teachers interested in completing their National Board Certification are supported.

Targeting the Needs of Hawaiian Students with Disabilities


On July 10, 2008, Senator Daniel K. Inouye announced four new grants under the Native Hawaiian Education Act that were awarded to the Center on Disability Studies (CDS) in the UHM College of Education. These grants will provide over $1.6 million annually for the next three years to support the needs of Hawai‘i’s students from preschool through ninth grade. The First Steps to Success program is designed to promote and develop positive behaviors and to increase literacy for Native Hawaiian preschool children on O‘ahu. The Pono School Climate Project will develop programs to improve academic achievement a mong W indwa rd O‘ahu students by helping them to create pono school climates. Dr. Kelly Roberts of CDS, a key developer of these two programs, says, “We are very excited to begin these two projects and believe they have the potential to positively impact many youth across O‘ahu.” Two other programs focus on the academic achievement of students with disabilities. The Ka‘imi loa o ka hihi project, led by Dr. Norma Jean Stodden, focuses on enhancing mathematics and science achievement for students with disabilities through the use of an online electronic tool. This project will serve students from grade four through seven on O‘ahu, Kaua‘i, and the Big Island. A fourth project, directed by Dr. Robert Stodden, uses culturally responsive intervention strategies to increase academic achievement for Native Hawaiian students with disabilities in grades seven through nine. This project is in partnership with several charter schools serving Native Hawaiian youth.

Going Home Plus Participant

Transitioning Residents Back Home The Center on Disability Studies (CDS) was awarded a new grant in October 2007 titled Going Home Plus, part of a five-year, twelve million dollar grant from the Centers on Medicaid and Medicare to the Department of Human Services. The focus of Going Home Plus is to support the appropriate transition of residents from institutions back into their home communities. The target groups of the grant are adults with developmental disabilities, those with physical handicaps, and elderly individuals. For the first year, CDS will use the grant to assist with implementation planning and to develop a national and local evaluation. Associate Director of CDS Jean Johnson said, “Going Home Plus provides a wonderful opportunity to assist people who have long-term care needs. The additional funds and the flexibility provided under the grant can assist us in assuring that people will have the support they need to live in the community and that their care givers will be appropriately trained to meet their needs.”

A story about the Curriculum Research & Development Group’s National Science Foundation research project, The Role of Gender in Language Used by Children and Parents Working on Mathematical Tasks, aired nationally on NPR on May 5, 2008. The fifteen-minute story was featured on Glenn Busby’s The Best of Our Knowledge (TBOOK). Busby, of WAMC, Northeast Public Radio, and Kayla Rosenfeld, of Hawai‘i Public Radio, produced the show as one of eight radio stories in the series Sounds of Progress, which examine groundbreaking research and the implementation of research-based practices throughout the U.S. designed to increase the role of young girls and women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

During the summer of 2008, the Department of Kinesiology and Leisure Science officially became the Department of Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Science. As department chair Nathan Murata commented, “There will be no more ‘leisure’ in the College of Education.” The change in name reflects a change in program offerings. The master’s degree in counseling and guidance, formerly offered through the department of counseling, is now offered through the kinesiology and rehabilitation science department. The counseling and guidance master’s program provides a single, focused track in the area of rehabilitation counseling. Nationally accredited by the Council on Rehabilitation Education (CORE), the UHM program trains professional counselors dedicated to working with individuals with physical, emotional, and mental disabilities to help them achieve productive and independent lives. Graduates of the program are eligible to take a national examination to earn a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC) designation.

Partner School Award The National Network for Education Renewal (NNER) selected Ho‘okula– iwi to receive the 2008 Richard W. Clark Partner School Award. Ho‘okula– iwi: A Community, School, and University Partnership for the Vitalization of Public Education in a Native Hawaiian Community was cited as “demonstrating remarkable vision and progress in critical aspects of partner school work dedicated to social justice.” The award recognizes the authentic and broad collaboration among the Na– na– kuli/Wai‘anae community, the Na– na– ikapono Elementary School, the UH Ma– noa College of Education, and the UH Ma– noa Kawaihuelani Center for Hawaiian Language that results in building and sustaining quality education. Criteria for the award included evidence of tripartite involvement (college of education, college of arts and sciences, and local school), changes in school and university practices, collaboration to promote partner school functions and democracy in policies and practices, and evidence of impact on learning.

Ho‘okula– iwi partners accepted the award at the 2008 NNER national conference in Arlington, Texas. Ann Foster, NNER Executive Director, said, “The adaptation of partner school principles to the local needs of the school community stands as an example to others. The inclusive nature of the partnership and the commitment to all participants’ life-long learning are noteworthy.” Myron Brumaghim, a founding member of Ho‘okula– iwi, summed it up: “We want our children to live their dreams. We want educational opportunities for our children that focus energies and resources on guiding and supporting them as they journey towards success in life. And, most important, our community wants to be self-determining in this process.”

National Leadership Academy

With support from the College of Education, Myron Brumaghim, a 2006 National Distinguished Principal, and Elden Esmeralda were chosen to participate in the July 2008 academy in Washington D.C. Brumaghim, former principal of Na– na– ikapono Elementary School, has partnered with the COE for eighteen years, most of which has been spent co-developing the Ho‘okula– iwi partnership. “It is an honor to be a part of this initial class. Hopefully we will be able to begin the dialogue about creating national goals that are realistic and attainable for all students and schools in our nation,” Brumaghim said. Esmeralda, who received his BEd in educational psychology from the COE in 1986, is the current principal of Na– na– ikapono Elementary. He said, “The conference was very enlightening. I was intrigued with the concept of how to give your school community a voice, and I think the protocols that we participated in were very useful and practical.” In his new administrative role, Esmeralda brings a strong commitment to the COE’s Ho‘okula– iwi partnership.

Hugh Dunn, Susan York, and Morris Lai

Another First Place for Outstanding Publication Morris K. Lai, Hugh H. Dunn, and Susan E. York of the Curriculum Research & Development Group (CRDG) were awarded first place in the Division H (Applied Research, Assessment, and Evaluation in Schools) Outstanding Publications Competition at the annual American Educational Research Association (AERA) meeting in New York in March 2008. Having won in the best alternative reporting method category last year, Lai and Dunn, along with York this year, won for best summary report for 2007. The report, titled Data-Substantiated Evaluation Assertions About Pihana Na– Mamo, summarizes the effects of a project funded by the U.S. Department of Education through the Native Hawaiian Education Act. Since 2000, Pihana Na– Mamo: The Native Hawaiian Special Education Project has sought to improve the education of Native Hawaiian children. “The report not only provides a succinct data-rich account of our project’s positive outcomes across years, it also captures the basic essence of our project’s mission,” Dunn said. “The award affirms the hard work and dedication of all who are involved in this project.”

In early 2008, an event was held in Washington D.C. featuring Representative George Miller, Linda Darling Hammond, John Goodlad, and other educational leaders, that culminated in the release of a new report, Democracy at Risk: The Need for New Federal Policy in Education. The report was a follow-up to the influential publication A Nation at Risk on the twenty-fifth anniversary of its publication. The new book called for the creation of a “National Principal Leadership Academy.” Darling-Hammond, of the Stanford University Urban School Network, and John Goodlad, author of Education for Everyone: Agenda for Education in a Democracy, then worked with Sam Chaltain, the Executive Director of the Five Freedoms Leadership Academy to host forty selected administrators from around the nation in their first academy.

First Place in Program Evaluation Studies


Paul R. Brandon, Brian E. Lawton, and Val Krohn-Ching of the Curriculum Research & Development Group (CR DG) received f irst place in the Program Evaluation Studies category of the Outstanding Publications Competition from the American Educational Research Association (AER A). Their Division H entry, Evaluation of the Final Year of the ARTS FIRST Windward Research Project, was prepared under a grant subcontract to the Hawai‘i Arts Alliance from the U. S. Department of Education Arts in Education Model Development and Dissemination program. “We wanted to submit the most comprehensive and therefore competitive report that we could,” Principal Investigator Brandon said. “It turned out that many more reports than we anticipated were entered, so we feel quite honored to have received the award.” This year, the Program Evaluation Studies category received 31 entries, more than any of the other 12 categories.

Bryan G. Cook

James M. K auffman Publication Award Professor of special education and Hugh Everly Scholar Bryan G. Cook was awarded the James M. Kauffman Publication award from the Curry School of Education at the University of Virginia for his work on the side effects of inclusion for students with learning disabilities, which was published as a special issue of Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal. He was surprised by the award while attending the International Convention of the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) on April 4, 2008 where he presented his work on evidence-based practices in special education. “It is a great honor to be recognized by one of the most distinguished special education programs in the country and to be associated with the work and legacy of Jim Kauffman,” Cook said. Last year, Cook received the Early Career Research Award from the CEC’s Division for Research, which is given to researchers in special education who are ten or fewer years out of their PhD and recognizes their outstanding scientific contributions to special education research.

Best Article Ronald Heck, Chair of the Department of Educational Administration, received the 2007 William J. Davis Award for the best article in the 2007 Educational Administration Quarterly (EAQ ) volume year. Heck’s article, “Examining the Relationship between Teacher Quality as an Organizational Property of Schools and Students’ Achievement and Growth Rates,” was selected. Dr. Heck’s research indicated that collective teacher quality in a school (defined as the percent of teachers who meet state licensing, content, and performance standards) are related to student achievement levels and growth in reading and math over time. In their review, the selection committee said, “This article explores, in a methodologically sophisticated way, one of the key variables associated with school effectiveness and one that speaks very directly to policy alternatives in many countries at the present time. The paper has important implications for issues concerning social and racial inequalities and challenges well-established evidence about the effect of school social composition on student achievement.” Given annually, the Davis Award was established in 1979 with contributions in honor of the late William J. Davis, former associate director of the University Council of Educational Administration (UCEA) and assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Suzanne Acord

Fellowship in Japan Suzanne Acord, head of the social studies section at the Curriculum Research & Development Group (CRDG), is one of twenty teachers from the U.S. and Canada selected for an eleven-day study tour of Japan. The Keizai Koho Center ( Japan Institute for Social and Economic Affairs), in cooperation with the National Association of Japan-America Societies (NAJAS), sponsored the fellowship which took place from June 30 – July 12, 2008. The fellowship enabled teachers to learn first-hand about contemporary Japanese society in order to enhance their classroom teaching of global perspectives. Acord, who teaches 10th grade world history at the UHM Laboratory School, said, “Our section seeks to create quality curriculum materials on Asia and the Pacific. I have worked as part of a team on three curriculum projects involving historical and contemporary Japan, but this will be my first time gaining practical experience in Japan.”

Esther Masako Tateishi Sato, professor emeritus in the College of Education, was decorated by the government of Japan with the Order of the Rising Sun, Gold Rays with Rosette for her accomplishments in national and public services and for promoting mutual understanding between Japan and the United States. A reception was held in her honor on May 23, 2008 at the Japanese Consulate where she received the badge. The Order of the Rising Sun, established in 1875, is Japan’s first national decoration and one of their most prestigious awards. Administered by the Decoration Bureau of the Office of the Prime Minister, the award is given in the name of the Emperor. “I am overwhelmed, and with deep humility and appreciation, I accept this award from the Japanese Government,” Sato said. “At the same time, I would like to share this great honor with all of those who have had a part in many of my undertakings throughout my career.” Her distinguished career has spanned an astounding seven decades.


Fulbright Senior Specialists Award David P. Ericson, professor in the Department of Educational Foundations and director of the Col lege of E duc at ion Off ice of International Education, was selected for a Fulbright Senior Specialists project in Denmark at Aarhus University during May 2008. His services, which included a seminar, a lecture series, and the codevelopment of a master’s program on education and educational policy in a multicultural society, were requested by Aarhus University through the Fulbright Scholarship Board and U.S. Department of State. According to Ericson, in the past few decades, Denmark has welcomed numerous refugees and immigrants, and integrating these populations with their very different cultural and religious backgrounds into mainstream Danish society is proving to be a challenge. “The University of Aarhus, among the world’s great research and teaching universities, is leading the way in addressing this challenge,” Ericson added.

National Art Education Association Academy Selection Bet t y L ou W i l l ia ms , associate professor of art education and instructor for the College of Education’s elementary, secondary, and graduate programs, was selected by the National Art Education Association (NAEA) to provide a co-sponsored academy. Learning from Objects and Site Visitation: People, Places, and Things, was accepted after a thorough screening process that resulted in the selection of five academies for 2008. Williams’ program was held at the Honolulu Academy of Arts in July 2008. “Art museums offer unique opportunities for students to acquire new viewpoints and understanding about themselves and the world, while building a foundation for lifelong learning,” Williams said.

COE Student Awarded Distinguished Fellowship Ta m m y P i c k l e s i m e r, doctoral student in the College of Education’s exceptionalities program and trainee in the Center on D i s abi l it y St ud ie s (CDS), was awarded the 2008 Disability Policy Fellowship with the Association of University Centers on Disability (AUCD) in Washington D.C. The purpose of the fellowship is to offer a significant experience in national level activities related to policy, legislative development, advocacy, program development, technical assistance, and association administration. “I don’t want to change my at-risk students to fit a particular education model or school system, but change the system to fit my ‘at-promise’ students,” Picklesimer said. “The best way to do that is to be part of the reform effort and policy making.” Picklesimer joined the AUCD policy staff at their national office on January 10, 2008.

Meredith Maeda, who earned his MEd at the College of Education in 1987, has been named the 2008 MetLife / National Association of Seconda r y School Pr incipals (NASSP) Hawai‘i High School Principal of the Year. Principal of James B. Castle High School for the past nine years, Maeda has had a significant impact on the school through his collaborative leadership. Among his many accomplishments, he has raised student achievement, improved the quality of teaching and instruction, created community and educational partnerships, and increased parent and volunteer participation. The MetLife/NASSP Principal of the Year program began in 1993 as a means of recognizing outstanding secondary school leaders who have succeeded in providing high-quality learning opportunities for students and making exemplary contributions to their profession. Maeda said, “This recognition validates the efforts of our school community for their willingness to explore best practices to improve student achievement. The award should be shared by my mentors and colleagues who provided the foundation for my own learnings.”

Ruth Silberstein, who earned t wo ma ster of educat ion degrees from the College of Education, one in 1989 and the other in 1991, is Hawai‘i’s 2008 National Distinguished Principal. Established in 1984, the program honors exemplary elementary and middle school principals who set the pace, character, and quality of the education children receive in their early school years. Silberstein was selected by a committee of principals and business community representatives

through the Hawai‘i Elementary and Middle School Administrators’ Students & Alumni Association. “With all of the tremendous challenges in education today, on the global and national scales, a distinguished principal is someone who represents all principals who are stepping up to the plate to meet these challenges with prudence and fortitude,” she said. Since 2001, Silberstein has been the principal of Palolo Elementary School where she has worked to implement and develop programs designed to meet the academic and social needs of its students. Silberstein was one of seven nominees for the award, four others of whom are also COE alumni: Lucia Stewart, Annette Nishikawa, Faith Tokeshi, and Wade Araki.

Amy Perruso, who earned her post-bacca laureate certificate at the College of Education in secondar y education in 2001, was named Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club 2007 Hawai‘i Teacher of the Year. She won a $10,000 grant for Mililani High School as well as a $1,000 donation to the school in her honor. Perruso has taught social studies at MHS for the past seven years. She currently coaches their mock trial team and teaches two Advanced Placement classes, AP U.S. History and AP Government and Politics. “It has been extremely gratif ying to be able to bring resources into our school and, more importantly, to increase public awareness of the commitment most public school teachers demonstrate to the young people in Hawai‘i and around the country,” Perruso said.

Everly the Educator


The College of Education bid a sad farewell to former dean Dr. Hubert Everly who died at the age of ninety-three on May 16, 2008. During his esteemed tenure as the college’s dean from 1956 to 1979, Everly was responsible for expanded enrollment, new degrees and buildings, increased research activity, the creation of the Curriculum Research & Development Group (CRDG), and the restructuring of the Laboratory School into a center for research and development. “He was indeed a beloved leader in the college,” said Donald B. Young, Associate Dean for Administration and Director of CRDG, whose first dean was Everly. Under the encouragement and guidance of Dean Benjamin Wist (dean of Teacher’s College 1931–1948), Everly left the University of Southern California and an athletic scholarship in 1937 to pursue both bachelor and master of education degrees at UH. After serving in the U.S. Army from 1943 to 1945, Everly completed his doctor of philosophy degree at Ohio State University with a dissertation on the role of laboratory schools. Upon his return to Hawai‘i, he was

“He was indeed a beloved leader in the college” appointed principal of University High School, a role he filled from 1948 until he became dean of the COE in 1956. It was under Everly’s tenure as dean that the Teacher’s College became the College of Education, recognizing that the COE prepared school administrators, librarians, and counselors in addition to teachers. But, according to former COE dean Randy Hitz, Everly was most proud of opening enrollment and doing away with strict quotas on admissions. Expanding enrollment allowed immigrant students from the plantations, who came from public schools, to get degrees and teach in Hawai‘i public schools, explained Amy Agbayani, the director of Student Equity, Excellence and Diversity (SEED) at UHM. “He was ahead of his time,” she added. Faced with political opponents and challenged by faculty from other colleges, Everly was known to turn directly to the legislature in order to secure funds for the COE. His perseverance and ingenuity helped him overcome

“He was ahead of his time”

opposition at every turn. In 1966, after being told by the legislature that there were no funds for new buildings, Everly relabeled his proposed project an “annex,” which would be connected to Wist Hall by one common wall. Today, Wist Annex 2 has been renamed Everly Hall in honor of its devoted namesake. Everly received many honors for his contributions to education over thirty-three years, including an endowed scholar position established in his name. At his memorial service, held on June 15, 2008 at the School of Architecture Auditorium, COE emeritus professors Robert Potter and Victor Kobayashi, as well as Agbayani, delivered tributes to Everly, highlighting the indelible impact he made on education. After retirement, Everly remained active with the Hawai‘i Education Association, the Hawai‘i State Retired Teachers Association, and the state Employees Retirement System. He was presented with a lifetime achievement award at the COE’s 2006 Recognition Dinner. In a video clip shown at the dinner, Everly said, “I would like to be remembered as an educator. When I look into the obituaries, I see obituaries for ‘former this/former that’. I want to be remembered as Everly the Educator.” And so he is.

Alexander Pickens

Alexander Legrand Pickens – College Benefactor Award Dr. Alexander Pickens thought that having a celebration in 1981 to mark the 50th anniversary of the College of Education’s beginnings as part of the University of Hawai‘i would be a good idea. The fact that there was no money for such a celebration did not stop him — he just went out and raised it. Then he set his sights on raising money for scholarships and endowments to support COE students, investing his own resources and encouraging others to do the same. Pickens did not set out to establish the COE’s development office, which is dedicated to him. His love for Hawai‘i, his passion for the COE, and his commitment to preparing teachers for public schools led him to that mission. Pickens began his career as a teacher in Texas public schools, later joining the academic ranks at the University of Michigan and the University of Georgia before coming to the University of Hawai‘i In 1962 where he served as a professor in art education until 1989. It was then that he became Assistant to the Dean for College Development, working to raise resources for the COE until his retirement in 2001. He and his wife, Frances, have established an endowment fund to support student scholarships and contributed to many other funds through the years. An active supporter of the COE as well as the community, Pickens is involved in the Honolulu Theater for Youth, the Honolulu Symphony, and Chamber Music Hawai‘i.

The mission of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) is to “ma– lama” (protect) Hawai‘i’s people and environmental resources and to build a strong and healthy Hawaiian people and nation. Recognized nationally and internationally, its purpose is to provide the opportunity for a better life and future for all Hawaiians. The trustees of OHA understand the importance of education as the key to improving Hawaiians’ quality of life. They have invested resources to improve educational opportunities for Hawaiians and better access to education at all levels. In considering educational initiatives to support, OHA focuses on facilitating culturally sound opportunities that will promote academic success and lifelong learning. They support a broad range of educational programs from scholarships and tuition assistance to funding for charter schools, youth leadership and S.T.E.M. initiatives through Na– Pua No‘eau, homeless advocacy, books, curriculum development, preschools, and alternative programs for teacher preparation. OHA has been generous in their support of several programs and projects in the College of Education, most recently, Ho‘okula– iwi. Through Ho‘okula– iwi initiatives, OHA encourages Hawaiians to become teachers, preparing teachers to teach in schools that serve large percentages of Hawaiian students, creating curriculum responsive to the Hawaiian culture, and developing Hawaiian educational leaders for the future. These programs have focused primarily on efforts on the leeward side of O‘ahu, but also have extended to serve the needs of teachers on Ni‘ihau.

Stephanie Feeney - Award of Professional Distinction Stephanie Feeney worked for many years to improve education for the youngest children of Hawai‘i and our nation. Her passion and commitment to early childhood education pushed her to work for policy changes in Hawai‘i and to advocate for a master’s degree in early childhood education at the College of Education that is accessible across the state. Feeney received her education at UCLA, Harvard, and Claremont Graduate University. She began her university teaching career as an assistant professor at UHM in 1972, retiring as a professor after more than 35 years of service. As professor emeritus, she continued to work with master’s students in the early childhood program. She is a prolific writer, publishing three books in 2008, two for early childhood educators and one for children. The eighth edition of her popular textbook Who Am I in the Lives of Children was released in 2009. This book, used in early childhood teacher education programs since 1979, has been translated into Japanese. Feeney has made significant contributions to early childhood education nationally through her work on professional ethics. She is co-author of the Code of Ethical Conduct for the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and has written two books about professional ethics for the association. She has written four books for children about Hawai‘i — A is for Aloha, Hawai‘ i is a Rainbow, Sand to Sea and the new Sun and Rain: Exploring the Seasons in Hawai‘ i. Active in early education policy, Feeney serves on many committees in Hawai‘i and on the governing boards of NAEYC and the National Association for Early Childhood Teacher Educators (NAECTE).

Esther M asako Tateishi Sato International Impact Award


Esther Sato traces her mission to encourage East-West exchanges of culture and knowledge back to her experiences at the first World’s Fair in New York in 1939 where she participated as a greeter at the Japanese Pavilion. During the late 1930s, she also attended the World Youth Congress in New York and traveled around the United States as a member of the Inter-racial Youth Cabinet, sponsored by the National YMCA. Born and raised in Hawai‘i, Sato graduated from Maui High School in 1934. She returned to Hawai‘i in 1939 to begin her career in education as an elementary teacher. She moved to teaching secondary science and Japanese in 1944. In 1964, she began working at the University Laboratory School as a student teaching supervisor and Japanese instructor, becoming an assistant professor in 1966 and a professor in 1976, and retiring as professor emeritus in 1985. Sato was instrumental in building Japanese language programs both in Hawai‘i and across the mainland. She authored textbooks and instructional materials adopted here and on the mainland. She developed summer study tours of Japan and helped to create cooperative education and special intern programs at UHM, which eventually became the International Exchange Program. Although Sato formally retired in 1985, she remains active as an advisor to the International Exchange Program and is engaged in the community, supporting continuing understanding between East and West. In 2008, she was honored by the Japanese Government with the Order of the Rising Sun with Gold Rays and Rosette, given in the name of the Emperor, for promoting Japanese language education overseas and mutual understanding between Japan and the United States.

Ronald E. Bright

Ronald E. Bright Distinguished Alumni Award When Ron Bright, who was born and raised on a farm in Hilo, graduated from Hilo High School in 1951 and began attending the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo, he intended to become a certified public accountant. But after moving to the Ma– noa campus in 1953, he decided to major in education, beginning a long career in education and the arts. Bright began teaching at Castle High School in Ka– ne‘ohe in 1957, returning there after a two-year stint in the army and eventually retiring in 1993. However, he continued his active work with students until 2008. In his 50 plus years of service at Castle High, Bright directed well over 100 musicals and plays and created the Castle Performing Arts Center, a prototype for learning centers across Hawai‘i. He has been involved in music and theater in many ways, directing musical productions at Paliku Theatre, playing in both public and private venues, and appearing in television commercials and shows. He has received numerous awards, including the University of Hawai‘i Founder’s Alumni Association Life-time Achievement Award, the National Milken Hawai‘i Educator Award, Paul Harris Fellow Award from Rotary International, the Living Treasure of Hawai‘i Award, the National Hall of Fame Award from the Educational Theatre Association, the Alfred Preis Award from the Hawai‘i Alliance for Arts Education, and the Hawai‘i State Theater Council’s Po’okela Award to name just a few. More than a dozen of his students have gone on to Broadway and touring companies. Bright continues to encourage others to become teachers, giving back through the Ron Bright Scholarship at the Hawai‘i Community Foundation. About his career, Bright says, “there are not enough years in one’s life to give to people, to the community, to give to them what you have in you that’s best, but that, to me, is success.”
